Enjoyable old-school creature feature
Following a massive earthquake in the area, residents of a small Southern California suburb go missing one-by-one, and when the resulting discovery of a long-dormant sea creature as the cause is revealed a couple of locals band together with the authorities to stop it.
There was a lot to like with this effort. One of the better features here is the enjoyable old-school build-up featured here which is quite enjoyable. That the earthquake to open things off is quickly followed up with several nice attacks on the unsuspecting locals, including a solid 3D attack in the surrounding hills and underbrush, makes this quite fun as the ability to sneak up on victims in the same general area is a solid start. Even some of the typical tropes featured here, from the casual blindness about the dangers of the area, the mayor not wanting to take action for fear of how it’ll look to tourists and the police trying to control something beyond their control all help to enhance that tone. Once the film moves past this early setup, there’s a lot of fun on display as it embraces the cheesier aspects of its storyline. The idea of everyone in town at some point coming to the park and allowing themselves to get caught by the creature allows for a steady if slightly formulaic approach as there’s still a solid stream of attacks to provide a great pace to this, especially with the attacks in the final half that focus on slightly more suspenseful tactics and ambushes. As the creature is kept mostly to the shadows, there are enough glimpses to get an idea of what it looks like which showcases a charming and cheesy practical puppet that could’ve been shown more to add to that setup, there’s enough to like here to hold this up overall. There are a few minor issues at hand that resort to essentially nitpicks at the film. The inclusion of padding out the running time at several points here with entire segments from other films or TV shows which is quite odd to keep switching over to these different formats in the middle of the scene. The randomness of the victims coming up to the same area and encountering the creature is something that might be problematic as it’s a trend that is noticeable and slightly distracting. As well, the most genuine issue here is the rushed and underwhelming finale that’s over so quickly it’s hard to register it ended and just rushes through the motions incredibly quickly instead of letting what could’ve been a solid idea play itself out. This, though, is the one main flaw against the other nitpicks.
Rated Unrated/R: Violence and Language.
We’ve covered a few of Dustin Ferguson’s movies here before – we have a few more in the stack of films to watch as well – and he’s been as busy as anyone I can think of in years when it comes to getting out new horror movies. He’s made everything from Die Sister, Die! and Silent Night, Bloody Night 2: Revival to two (going on three) Amityville films and continuations of the Meathook Massacre and Nemesis films. He’s definitely a fan in his heart – he had dreams of owning his own video store – and the fun of that comes through in his films.
The Beast Beneath is all about a 2,000 year old monster – I’ve seen it described as a daddy long-legs – that gets released after an earthquake. There’s only one person who can stop it and that’s brilliant and gorgeous scientist Charlene Brinkeman (Brinke Stevens, the model for Betty in The Rocketeer comics as well as the scream queen who was in such favorites as The Slumber Party Massacre, Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama, Nightmare Sisters and so many more). Luckily, she has her brother Aaron (Eric Prochnau, Meathook Massacre Part VI: Bloodline) along for some help.
However, the town has a mayor who has seen Jaws way too many times, Mayor George Reid (Mel Novak, Black Belt Jones, Truck Turner and, of course, the Chuck Norris movies An Eye for an Eye and A Force of One and the Bruce Lee film Game of Death). Fergusson is smart to keep his movies tight – 70 minutes – and filled mostly with in-camera effects and good looking cast members. There’s even a bonus scene in 3D, if you can find a pair of glasses.
And how cool is it that this movie debuted on WGUD, an actual low power television station in Pascagoula, Mississippi?
Ferguson claims that he was inspired by films like Rattlers, The Savage Bees, Bog and Blood Beach, as well as made-for-TV horror movies. It shows – this is a fun throwback to those movies while it’s constantly changing look ads fun for movie geeks.
Also appearing are Shawn C. Phillips (who will be in Ferguson’s upcoming Amityille In the Hood), Jennifer Nangle (who is horror host Malvoila The Queen of Screams and also is in the upcoming sequel to the Italian film series Zombi VIII: Urban Decay), Sheri Davis (Blind), Mike Ferguson (who was in the DMX and Steven Seagal movie Beyond the Law), Ken May (Meathook Massacre 4), Raymond Vinsik Williams (Los Angeles Shark Attack), Geovonna Casanova (Angry Asian Murder Hornets), Lee Turner (who hosts the After Hours Cinema TV show that this movie debuted on) and Tino Zamora (Tales from the Campfire 3).
You may notice that several of the movies mentioned come from Ferguson. Like I wrote above, the guy sure is prolific. It feels like he would have fit right in to the Shot On Video horror section of some imaginary mom and pop video store, right alongside Spine, The Ripper and Splatter: The Architects of Fear.
